Frances and Michael had already tied the knot prior to their session with me and felt they needed to have another wedding portrait photoshoot. I thought that this was an amazing idea because they get the benefit of having a traditional wedding and still get beautiful bridal shots in a stunning location. I captured the bride and groom at the Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Brea , California. It was a magnificent day in the fall to celebrate tying the knot with the love of your life. They are huge Disney lovers so of course the beautiful bride incorporated her limited edition Vera Wang Minnie Ears. The ears were embellished with sparkling rhinestones that stood out just like her wedding ring. I was even able to capture the magic of Disney in the most perfect fairytale redwood grove background. It felt like I was capturing their love story straight out of a storybook.
The bride’s wedding dress was even fit for a queen; it had a mermaid dress silhouette with a sweetheart neckline and lace all over. The bride’s hairstyle had classic loose curls that bounced with every step she took and she decided to go with a natural makeup look. The bride's fairytale bridal look was completed with the most incredible tiara. The groom looked just like prince charming in his classic black and white tuxedo with a black bowtie. The wedding bouquet was filled with pink roses and white florals that mixed beautifully together.
I loved every minute of these wedding portraits. The bride and groom were so excited to express their love for each other, and I could only imagine how spectacular their actual wedding day was. I absolutely love being a wedding photographer because I get to capture special moments like these that Frances and Michael will look back onto for the rest of their lives.
